Formed from Moscow’s finest orchestral musicians, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the great Russian orchestras of today. Regular visitors to the world’s leading concert venues, the orchestra presents a richly colourful programme under the baton of its chief conductor, Yuri Simonov.
Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D minor is one of the best known, but among the most technically difficult works for violin. Written in just 11 days, in 1878, the work has become well known for its rich melodies and expressive nature. It is performed by the young Russian violinist, Nikita Boriso-Glebski, winner of the 2010 International Jean Sibelius Violin competition and International Fritz Kreisler Violin Competition.
